We are happy to announce that our friends and supporters in America can now far more easily support the work that Nightingales is doing here in Romania. Through our friends at the organisation Good Bureau, a non-profit run by an American, Ryan Crozier, from Bucuresti, that, supports Romanian organisations and local leaders to effect change in the communities that they are in. We can now receive sponsorship and donations from our friends in America, through an American based platform, ‘Mighty Cause’. The platform is very easy to use and does not cost Nightingales anything in fees for people to make the donation. The money is then transferred for no cost to Romania. The link is https://www.mightycause.com/story/Nightingales
The money raised from this site will allow Nightingales to continue to provide the care the beneficiaries in our programmes need and deserve. So that you will be able to see where your money raised each month will go, we have a breakdown of how the money will be spent. We are also aware that at this time people have been hit hard by effects of Covid-19, and we too have been feeling the effects, whilst continuing to provide the best possible care and opportunities for the young people in our care.
How the donations will be used:
$5 – Provides a hot meal a day for the young people using the day centre, between 3 and 8 people.
$10 – Supports one of the young men at risk to be in an apprentice scheme learning practical skills which will lead to employment.
$20 – Provides heating for 12 days in the winter for the house where our disabled adults live. In the winter temperatures can drop as low as -18 degrees Celsius.
$50 – Sponsors one of the girls at risk a month, providing them with homework help, mentoring, involvement in a social enterprise and also an allowance of $36, which helps provide their family with a much needed income.
$100 – Helps provide an awards ceremony for local schools to honour and support the children who are not honour students but are working hard to do their best, helping to highlight those students who struggle with dyslexia and ADHA.
